Still reeling from festive heartache the year before, he is struggling to get into the spirit of the season, even despite his friends’ best efforts to cheer him up. But when a sprightly new face enters his life, tantalisingly wrapped gift in hand, will he be able to stop acting like a Scrooge and accept the Christmas present? Read on, and find out…!

I ho-ho-hope you enjoy this short Yuletide story, just in time for the big day – it’s an idea I came up with last Christmas and was originally written as a script for a short film, but I think it works just as well (if not better!) in prose form too, so I couldn’t resist typing it up all over again.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you all!
